The 2GB model arrives with a MediaTek Helio A22 (MT6761) chipset and also runs on the HiOS skin which is based on Android 9.0 Pie and has an internal storage of 16GB.

One good thing about the expansion of the smartphones is that if the storage offered by the smartphones is not enough for your storage purposes, then you can further expand the storage with up to 32GB via a MicroSD card.


One of the admirable features of the Tecno Spark 3 is its battery life which TECNO Mobile was able to deliver well. Considering the price at which the smartphone is offered, you would not say that the 3,500mAh battery which the Tecno Spark 3 comes in with is not okay.

The 3,500mAh capacity battery is capable of delivering a full day use if only you will run the Android Go edition Applications, though most times the hours which the smartphone offers some times depends on the user’s usage.

Don’t expect to see any fast charging or wireless charging technology because the Spark 3 did not feature any of those specs but the charger in which the smartphone comes in with is okay.
